The Top Quotes on Meditation and Mindfulness

In this day in age, it’s imperative to have a clear mind. We are filled with distractions and remain unfocused throughout the day. It’s no wonder why we have such a hard time be productive.

Below are some great quotes on meditation and mindfulness. Enjoy.

If you want to find God, hang out in the space between your thoughts. – Alan Cohen

 

If you can’t meditate in a boiler room, you can’t meditate. – Alan Watts

 

If you can’t meditate in a boiler room, you can’t meditate. – Alan Watts

 

Do one thing at a time, and while doing it put your whole soul into it to the exclusion of all else. – Swami Vivekananda

 

There is no limit to the power of the human mind. The more concentrated it is, the more power is brought to bear on one point. – Swami Vivekananda

 

Meditation is a microcosm, a model, a mirror. The skills we practice when we sit are transferable to the rest of our lives. – Sharon Salzberg

 

It is never too late to turn on the light. Your ability to break an unhealthy habit or turn off an old tape doesn’t depend on how long it has been running; a shift in perspective doesn’t depend on how long you’ve held on to the old view. When you flip the switch, it doesn’t matter whether it’s been dark for ten minutes, ten years or ten decades. The light still illuminates the room and banishes the murkiness, letting you see the things you couldn’t see before. It’s never too late to take a moment to look. – Sharon Salzberg

 

“Don’t hate the arising of thoughts or stop the thoughts that do arise. Simply realize that our original mind, right from the start, is beyond thought, so that no matter what, you never get involved with thoughts. Illuminate original mind, and no other understanding is necessary.” ~Zen Master Bankei Yotaku

 

Meditation is a process of lightening up, of trusting the basic goodness of what we have and who we are, and of realizing that any wisdom that exists, exists in what we already have. We can lead our life so as to become more awake to who we are and what we’re doing rather than trying to improve or change or get rid of who we are or what we’re doing. The key is to wake up, to become more alert, more inquisitive and curious about ourselves. ~Pema Chodron

 

“When your attention moves into the Now, there is an alertness. It is as if you were waking up from a dream, the dream of thought, the dream of past and future. Such clarity, such simplicity. No room for problem-making. Just this moment as it is.” ~Eckhart Tolle

 

“At the end of the day, I can end up just totally wacky, because I’ve made mountains out of molehills. With meditation, I can keep them as molehills.” ~Ringo Starr

 

“When you have achieved a state of deep meditation, you unlock the door to your subconscious mind. That is where the power to create the life you desire lies.” ~Adrian Calabrese

 

“Keep your heart clear

And transparent,

And you will never be bound.

A single disturbed thought

Creates ten thousand

Distractions.”

~Ryokan Taigu

 

“I said to my soul, be still and wait without hope, for hope would be hope for the wrong thing; wait without love, for love would be love of the wrong thing; there is yet faith, but the faith and the love are all in the waiting. Wait without thought, for you are not ready for thought: So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing.” 

T.S. Eliot

 

“Looking at beauty in the world, is the first step of purifying the mind.” 

Amit Ray, Meditation: Insights and Inspirations

 

“To understand the immeasurable, the mind must be extraordinarily quiet, still.” 

Jiddu Krishnamurti
